Is there a way to force the browser to not open the file? Thanks for any help November 4, 2018 at 11:43 pm #833 olivierParticipant Solution found: put an .htaccess file inside the folder containing the pdf to be downloaded using sdm_download plugin. Files offered to download must be in their own specific folder. Content of the .htaccess is: <FilesMatch “\.pdf$”> ForceType application/octet-stream Header set Content-Disposition attachment </FilesMatch> works like a charm!
